Every iPhone user should check out Apple's updated privacy website today

Apple has rebuilt its privacy website to show off "everyday apps designed for your privacy".

Sign in with Apple can even create a unique email address that forwards any correspondence to the user's real address, meaning digital firms never know who they actually are. "What you share from those experiences, and who you share it with, should be up to you".

Apple has had a privacy page for a few years now, but in most cases the information the company provided was scant on specific details about what Apple does to protect privacy, preferring to just speak in overall general terms about its policies and how it protects your privacy. Apple is no different, and with an updated privacy website it seeks to distance itself from the controversy-addled likes of Facebook and Google.

Apple kicks things off by saying: "Privacy is a fundamental human right". Rather, this invigorate works superbly of sorting out data Apple has partaken in the past into one spot (counting the security assurances it added to iOS 13 and macOS Catalina).

The company has refreshed its privacy portal to provide a one-stop-shop for everything it feels people might want to know about the way it collects and handles data. Your devices are important to so many parts of your life.

"We design Apple products to protect your privacy and give you control over your information". That's a shame, because Apple's redesigned pages also highlight how to use some of the features that the company has been praised for in recent months. "But that's the kind of innovation we believe in".

Messages: Apple can't read your iMessages while they're being sent between you and the person you're texting.

Apple also states information on trips using its Maps software or queries made via Siri aren't gathered, stored or ever used by third parties and all sensitive data such as fingerprints and facial recognition are only held locally on a device.

Apple also points out that the Apple Maps application, in stark contrast to its biggest competitor, Google Maps, keeps location history completely anonymous.

Wallet: Your credit and debit card numbers are hidden, and Apple doesn't keep information that can be tied back to you.
